Cheese, milk diet vital for smarter brain
New study shows that dairy products are good for your brain. We suspected it all along.
The study, involving US and Australian researchers, was based on 1,000 adults. It found those who regularly have dairy products such as milk, cheese and yoghurt score better in tests of mental ability than people who never, or rarely, consume dairy products.
It follows another US study, involving 104 pensioners, where scientists found that older people with higher levels of beneficial fats in their blood had less brain shrinkage typical of the Alzheimer's disease, the International Dairy Journal reports.
